  1. Spirit Detailing
    There's been a lot of cars over the threshold at my place recently with pretty bad damage caused by people who don't know how to use a machine polisher but still charge for the service. Here are two cars that came in one after the other last week for paint rectification. BMW 520D 2011...
  2. Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, How is everyone on BMW-Driver.net? Just thought I would stick my head in and say hi. Its been a long while. :) I know loads of members and non-members have been in with me over the summer for paint corrections and detailing work (and I promised to get back on the forum) but if...

    Hi Guys, Looking at buying a car in dublin and im from Cork. I previously got the AA to check a car for me in dublin, report didnt turn out good and im now down €300 (although it was worth it). Id like to not have to repeat this everytime i look at a car. Is there any trustworthy garage in...
  5. Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, you get two write-ups for the price of one here! The paint on these cars were polar opposites, the Porsche having nice hard German paint and the Jaguar having challenging Land Rover paint! I didn't get too many in-process photos, so this will short and sweet! Starting with the...

    I had Sean's 520i in for a paint correction in the past few days. I was hoping to do a good photo-thread of the detail but on day 1, I had my camera but left the memory card at home! D'Oh! :rolleyes: So the first bunch of photos are just taken with my (old) phone!! So, I collected the car at...

    Hi guys, Over the Winter, I am doing a slight change to my business hours. I will be open from Tuesday to Saturday from 9.15 to 5.45. Although on Saturday, if its a quiet day I might leave at 5. :rolleyes: The reason for this is that a lot of people have been calling about collecting...
  8. Spirit Detailing
    A full day spent on a set of leather! But it needed proper professional attention. Here's a few photos and the process went like this: 1. Overnight Surface Prep to loosen grime, body oils, stains and surface dirt. 2. Surface deep cleaning 3. Rinse 4. Acidity Regulator 5. Rinse 6 Surface...
  9. Spirit Detailing
    I planned in advance to do a photo-log of this detail but I didn't realise it was going to be such a difficult paint correction. Here's how the Bentley arrived. It was a tumult of swirls and a heady haze of holograms. No time to waste, so straight in with the prepping. I started off...
  10. Cleaning & Detailing
    If you're interested in keeping your car clean, and spend any time on detailing forums - you will already know what Nano Technology is. The Car Care industry is coming up with and perfecting such a wide range of new technologies, there's no better time to be a car care enthusiast. It's pretty...
  11. Spirit Detailing
    Guys, I got a good few emails about my mobile detail and paint correction service since the E30 & Z4 thread. Just to clarify what to expect from a single-day paint correction: Example A. If your car is a few years old and is pretty hazed over with deep scratches, then a single-day's detailing...
  12. Spirit Detailing
    Just a quick write up. Fingers are fecked after polishing steel rims for a few hours this morning!! :p Had this STI in from the South East last week. It was fairly swirled and scratchy so needed the full Spirit TLC treatment. The pix will do most of the talking, but just in case it did get...
  13. Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, Quick one for ye, because I've been really busy the past few weeks. I've been getting a heap of BMW in and loads more booked. Next week is Jap week though... STI, RX8 and Skyline in for Paint correction and CQuartz details. This 320D came in a few weeks ago for a paint correction &...
  14. Spirit Detailing
    Nice little car here. I was supposed to have it in the workshop for two days, but a slight hiccup at the mechanic's place meant that I just had it for one full day to do interior and paint correction. The owner asked if this was a problem..... well, I'm known for miracles sometimes. Not this...
  15. Spirit Detailing
    This E90 330D M Sport is a cool car. I have a very slight preference for a 335D but this particular 330D is very alluring in this dense metallic Graphite colour and carbon fibre trim. An ideal car for CQuartz coating - but in need of a good prepping and polishing first! Here's how it arrived...
  16. Spirit Detailing
    Guys, A good way to keep a car looking new is with an intensive 1-day detail. This 330D came in for a good all-over Detail. Since its a bespoke service, tailored to the owners needs, the owner requested that I focus more on the exterior polishing than on the interior. However, I'm always up for...
  17. Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, I am now taking bookings for the mobile Detailing and Paint Correction service. This is where I come out to your car and spend a full day working on it. There are three service packages available: 1. Intensive Exterior Detail - Paint Cleanse, Correction and Protection. 2. Eclectic...
  18. Spirit Detailing
    Hi guys, Here's a 9 year old 530d over from UK for a bit of polishing & coating with CQuartz. Forgive the lack of photos, but this one needed my full attention so process wasn't really logged in pictures. As always, treatment started with a full paint detox, beginning with the Acid-Neutraliser...

    Hi guys, A new White Golf GTI was purchased in December by one of my clients, Dave. I had detailed his previous red Golf GTI to a very high gloss and coated it with Crystal Diamond Glaze. CDG is one of the great sealants. It lasts well and leaves a gloss to rival the very best waxes out...
  20. Spirit Detailing
    Guys, I am just working on a new business model for the new year and will be changing my services and prices. However, here is one that I think people can benefit from in December as a pre-Christmas maintenance detail. Its great! I call it the 1-Day Intensive Care Detail and it is a SERIOUS...
